British National Party activists have successfully handed in our Bring Our Boys Home petition to 10 Downing Street, reports Jennifer Matthys.
Nick Griffin, the Rev Robert West and five decorated ex-servicemen handed in the first wave of our Bring Our Boys Home petitions, carrying some 10,000 signatures, at 12.30 p.m. as scheduled. The handing in of the petition passed off without incident and was filmed by television news crews.
Prior to delivering the petition, activists and members of the Party’s British Veterans’ Group observed a two-minute silence and a Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in Whitehall.
The Service was led by the Rev Robert West, moderator of the Christian Council of Great Britain, and Peter Molloy, head of the British National Party Veterans’ Association. Several London black cabs hooted their support as the veterans and activists unfurled one of our popular Bring Our Boys Home banners.
Later, passing members of the public joined British National Party members in applauding a short speech by Nick Griffin MEP at the entrance to Downing Street as he explained that the Party is providing a voice for the huge number of Britons who, like us, oppose any involvement in wars in Afghanistan or, in the future, the Middle East, that have nothing to do with Britain.
“The whole of the Middle East from Saudi Arabia through to Tunisia is not worth the bones or blood of one British soldier,” Mr Griffin told assembled reporters. “Keep Britain out of foreign wars that have nothing to do with us.”
